Bonfire Season on the Levee

Bonfires on the Levee, often called Christmas Eve Bonfires by the locals, is a centuries-old holiday tradition just a short drive from New Orleans in Louisiana’s River Parishes. During the weeks that follow Thanksgiving, families and friends come together atop the Mississippi River levees to construct nearly two hundred 20-foot-high wooden bonfires that celebrate and honor the region’s storied past. Parades, festivals, and open houses during Bonfire Season build anticipation for the spectacular Bonfires on the Levee on Christmas Eve.
